Description from the publisher:


Infinite possibilities....
Infinite passion.....
Infinite danger....
His touch spirals through me, warm and sweet, wicked and hot.  I shouldn't trust him.  I shouldn't tell him my secrets.  But how do I not when he is the reason I breathe?  He is what I need.


At the young age of eighteen, tragedy and a dark secret force Lara to flee all she has known and loved to start a new life.  Now years later, with a new identity as Amy, she's finally dared to believe she is forgotten-even if she cannot forget.  But just when she lets her guard down, the ghosts of her past are quick to punish her, forcing her back on the run.

On a plane, struggling to face the devastation of losing everything again and starting over, Amy meets Liam Stone, a darkly entrancing recluse billionaire, who is also a brilliant, and famous, prodigy architect.  A man who knows what he wants and goes after it.  And what he wants is Amy.  Refusing to take "no" as an answer, he sweeps her into a passionate affair, pushing her to her erotic limits.  He wants to possess her.  He makes her want to be possessed.  Liam demands everything from her, accepting nothing less.  But what if she is too devastated by tragedy to know when he wants more than she should give?  And what if there is more to Liam than meets the eyes?



Amy has spent nearly six years being invisible.  She knows this is the only way to remain alive.  Then she takes a job at the museum.  She has returned to her love of history, but she has also brought attention to herself.  That attention could bring “them” back into her life, and they will end her life.  On the run again, she meets Liam.  Liam is tall, dark, and handsome personified.  The embodiment of the Prince Charming of her fantasies.  The minute their eyes meet there is an instantaneous, earth-shattering desire that cannot be denied.  How can she be invisible and be with Liam?


This is an excellent story with steamy erotic sex and a mystery to be solved.  I am absolutely in love with Liam… and his tattoo.  My favorite quote is “"Liam has singlehandedly made math sexy for a girl who has despised every number she's ever met."  Just imagine what he's doing for a girl who loves numbers!  I am gifting a couple of copies of this books to friends, just so they can join me in the angst of waiting for the second book!
